New Delhi, Metro Rail News: The Ashram Metro station which is a part of the 9.7 kilometre section of the Delhi metro’s Pink Line etro is all set to make a new world record of being the smallest Metro station in the world. The size of the metro station is just 151.6 metre against an average of 265 metre

This underground station would greet commuters with artwork on the theme of ‘mother and child’.  The color scheme brings out the theme of ‘abundance’. 

Delhi Metro created a new engineering masterpiece, with length of just 135m the newly constructed Ashram’s Metro Station on Shiv Vihar – Majlis Park Pink line is the smallest Metro Station in the world.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had to fight various land acquisition battles to build the station which is located at the centre of one of the busiest intersections in the national capital. The delaying legal battles for land acquisition forced the designers to design a station that required a space of 151.6 metre only against the average of 265 metre.

A senior Metro official said that the designers came up with a new design instead of waiting for two years to acquire a private land and delaying the line. He added that since the land prices are soaring, the space saving design is a boon for the government.

Due, to shortage of land Delhi Metro decided to construct this metro station in Vertical Loop and not in Horizontal..

Prior to this, Bhikaji Cama Place is the smallest Metro station in the Delhi Metro network with a length of 225.5 metre.

The station which will welcome the commuters at three levels has three entry/exit gates at National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India (NAFED), the fire station at Mathura Road and CSIR apartments.

Congratulations Delhi Metro for achieving a milestone in Delhi.
